Lung cancer is the leading cause of global cancer deaths. Current chemotherapeutic agents for lung cancer treatment are generally accompanied with severe side effects. Here, we report that marchantin C (Mar-C), a potential natural compound with little chemotherapeutic toxicity, exerts a well anti-tumor effect against lung cancer via inducing cellular senescence. The antitumor activity of Mar-C was evaluated by MTT and colony formation in vitro cytotoxicity assays, and xenograft and homograft in vivo model. Antitumor mechanisms of Mar-C were investigated through SA-β-gal staining, Q-PCR, immunoblotting, immunofluorescence, protein array and siRNA knocking-down analysis. Mar-C selectively induces senescence of lung cancer cells with limited cytotoxicity on normal or non-neoplastic cells. Mar-C-induced senescence was associated with the elevation of ROS and activation of DNA-damage, and largely dependent of prolonged p21CIP1 accumulation. The senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) induced by Mar-C was distinct from doxorubicin-induced. Furthermore, Mar-C exhibited an inhibitory activity on tumor growth with little toxicity in animal studies, and significantly prolonged the survival time of tumor-bearing mice than that of...Continue Reading

Cancer Epigenetics and Senescence (Keystone)

Epigenetic changes are present and dysregulated in many cancers, including DNA methylation, non-coding RNA segments and post-translational protein modifications. The epigenetic changes may be involved in regulating senescence in cancer cells. This feed captures the latest research on cancer epigenetics and senescence.
